About “Mason” Brick

*Attractive, easy to install brick pattern foundation cover- measured height x width- vacuum formed panels composed of durable hard milled, 0.60 mil thickness- ABS plastic- designed so that adjoined panels overlap and create a continuous brick masonry pattern- weed-eater “proof”- won’t scratch or dent- panel is surrounded by 1″ flange for easy mounting- an affordable alternative to natural brick or concrete enclosure.

▲ Panels overlap in a “finger-joint” fashion and can be connected with either liquid adhesive or hex screws.

▲ When the panels join together they give a seamless look of continuity.

▲ The backside of each brick panel is reinforced with two vertical structural supports.

▲ Options for top trim include a vinyl top back/ top front combination (left) or vinyl top back/dentril trim combination (right)

▲ Another trim option is to use steel top trim and steel ground channel to go the the brick panels.

▲ Another option is to combine a vinyl top back/dentril trim combination with vinyl ground channel.

Panels can be bent around corners with a heat gun, but we also offer steel corners if you don’t want to bend the panel!

Our brick skirting can transform your home into the talk of the neighborhood!

Access Doors

We offer two access doors, one is black and one is white. They work the same way, but you get to choose what you think looks best with your skirting. Click on either one to order!

Ground Channel

◁ Our vinyl ground channel is the best option for our brick skirting. 

If you want to ground channel to be invisible, a small steel “J-Rail” can be attached to the ground, and the panel can be attached in front, appearing to go all the way to the ground or lower. 

Another option for a ground channel is our steel ground channel, although with brick panels it is a loose fit and will need to be attached to the panels with screws. Attach to the ground with spikes or to concrete with adhesive. Available in different colors to match the panels.

 Choose either ground channel already pre-cut to 60″ lengths, or full 10′ pieces

Steel Corners

If you don’t have a heat gun or propane torch to bend your panels around corners, we offer these steel corners in different colors to cover the spots where two panels “butt up” to the corners. Attach with screws or adhesive.  Available in different colors to match the panels.

 Choose either corners already pre-cut to 36″ lengths (heights), or full 9′ pieces for those homes sitting higher.

Foundation Vents

To insure you have sufficient ventilation under your home, place these vents at regular intervals in the rock panels. Use either screws or liquid adhesive to hold to the panel. We offer a plain Jane vent with a manual damper or a fancier automatic vent that opens and closes on its own when seasons change. Available in different colors to match the panels.

Hex Head Sccrews

The best option for fastening everything is hex head screws.  We offer screws with tan-colored heads to blend into the grout of brick panels where they are used to close up the overlapping areas.

If you use vinyl top back trim, you will only need the plain mill hex head screws, because they will be hidden from view. A short screw of 3/4″ length should be sufficient to hold the trim to the house, but we offer different lengths, in case you are trying to go into older material that may have softened over time.

Calculating a Kit for your Home

Manufactured homes come in many sizes, and you may have decks, porches, or additions attached to your home that you will need to cover, or perhaps you may only need to skirt a portion of your home. For this reason we do not offer a specific size of skirting kit, we sell only what you need. This section is designed to help you calculate the materials you will need.

 Please choose from one of the following categories or scroll down the page to follow our simple steps.

Calculate Trim

If you plan to cover the entire home, measure all four sides. For a 16′ wide x 76′ long house the 4 sides will total up to 184 lineal feet (LF)

If you have to skirt a deck, add the sides coming away from the home to the total lineal footage. Normally, if you skirt around your deck, you don’t have to skirt behind the deck. The red line indicates where your skirting will be installed.

For Metal Top and Bottom Trim, divide the total LF by 10.
Our steel trim pieces are 10′ long. 184 LF will require 19 pieces each of the top trim and ground channel.

For Vinyl Top Trim, divide the total LF by 11.
Our vinyl trim pieces are 11′ long. 184 LF will require 17 pieces each of the top back and top front trim.

Calculate Panels

Each panel will be roughly 60″ wide

To calculate the total number of full panels you will need, use this handy formula: Total lineal feet times 12 divided by 60 = Total number of panels needed.

Measure from the ground to the very bottom of the home’s outside wall. This will determine how tall a panel must be to reach from the ground channel to the siding. The flange of the rock panels will extend just above the bottom of the wall. The flange and the fasteners attaching it to the house will later be covered with the top trim.

We offer 2 different heights of panels, so it will be important to know how much of each size you will use. Take a height measurement every 5 feet and mark them down on a diagram of the house. 

Now make “zones” for each size of panel. Determine how many running feet will use 32″, 36″ and 48″ panels each. The quantities of each size should add up to the total number of panels you calculated earlier.

If you use a skirting access door, try to place the door in a spot that is near your water cut-off.

Calculate Vent Usage

If you use foundation vents, you will need to plan where they go. We recommend placing one vent every 15-20 lineal feet. Try to place your vents in the middle of a panel, rather than where two panels overlap. This may offset the vents a little, but the idea is to plan for an even look overall. 

Calculate Fasteners

You will need ground spikes to secure the bottom channel to the ground. 
 5-7 spikes per piece of ground channel
 is recommended, but you may need more for sandy soil.

If your skirting runs over concrete instead of soil, use liquid adhesive instead of ground spikes to secure the ground channel. ►
One tube of liquid adhesive for every 15 lineal feet over concrete is recommended.

The number of screws needed to install top trim will depend on the type of trim. For vinyl top back trim, you will need 2 screws per lineal foot. For 184 LF you will use 368 mill screws. These screws don’t show, so color of head isn’t important.

 For steel top trim, you will need 6 screws per 10 lineal feet, including a few extra for overlaps and corners. For 184 LF you will use 115 screws. These screws will be showing so color of screw head will be your choice.

Use tan hex head screws to connect the panels where they overlap.
A good formula for calculating these screws is-
Number of full panels
 x 12 = # of screws. 

The amount of screws you will need to attach panels to the ground channel is roughly one screw every 2 lineal feet, no matter if it’s vinyl or steel trim. For 184 LF you will use nearly 100 screws.

Brick Skirting Kit Component Chart

This handy chart shows the material requirements for the most common box sizes of manufactured homes. If you know the overall lineal footage of the area you want to skirt, this chart can show you at a glance about how much skirting you will use. Please consult our skirting expert for special quote.

Note: In the column headers, “Panels” = Red Brick or Brown Brick, “11′ Trim Pieces” = Vinyl Top Back, Top Front, or Ground Channel, “10′ Trim Pieces” = Steel Top Trim or Ground Channel, “5′ Trim Pieces” = Dentil Trim or Steel Ground Channel, “Vents” = Manual or Automatic Vents.
